Abstract: 
This research examined the relationships among learning styles, cognitive styles, and the choice of academic courses among Iranian male high-school students. 300 male tenth graders enrolled in mathematics, science and human sciences in Tehran area participated in this study. Kolb's Learning Styles Inventory (LSI) and the Withkin's Group Embedded Figures Test (GEFT) were completed to measure participants' four dimensions of learning styles (convergers, divergers, assimilators, and accommodators) and two dimensions of cognitive styles (field dependent and field independent). Data show that more field independent participants chose mathematics or science as their academic major than did field dependent participants. In contrast, more field dependent participants chose human sciences as their academic major than did field independent participants. Whereas convergers and assimilators more than divergers and accommodators chose mathematics and science, diverges and accommodators more than convergers and assimilators chose human sciences.
